Weight Loss Contouring Procedures in Columbia, MO

Lift, tuck, & contour the body post weight loss.

People who lose a large amount of weight often continue to struggle with excess skin, pockets of stubborn fat, separated abdominal musculature or diastasis recti and other concerns that compromise their physical comfort and aesthetic satisfaction. 


Post-bariatric body contouring refers to an individual and customizable treatment plan designed to help tighten, lift, firm or smooth areas of the body following massive weight loss. Most commonly, this includes a combination of procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, arm lift, thigh lift, breast reduction or breast lift, and possibly even neck lift and facelift surgery. In some cases, procedures can be performed at the same time. Dr. Shock recommends that you are stable at your ideal lowest weight prior to pursuing body contouring procedures. During your consultation she will discuss with you your priorities and help develop a surgical plan that works for you.
